DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse quinoa well before cooking. Prepare quinoa according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, combine onion and oil in a medium nonstick skillet.
  • Cook over medium-high heat until onion is browned, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. (If onion starts to burn, reduce heat.)
  • Set aside.
  • Rinse quinoa with cold water until cool; drain.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine quinoa, onion, and remaining ingredients (except tomato).
  • Mix well.
  • Stir in tomato.
  • Serve at room temperature.
  • HELPFUL HINT: Quinoa must be rinsed well before cooking to remove a natural bitter tasting but harmless coating. (The coating naturally protects quinoa from birds and insects.).
  • All ingredients except tomato can be prepared, combined, and chilled up to one day ahead. Add a small amount of broth if mixture seems dry, then stir in tomato.
